M4 cycling question

Recommended Posts

I just picked up my Benelli M4 from my dealer. I noticed that when I cycle the bolt/carrier all the way to the rear that it makes a rather loud/noticable contact with the reciever. I know this is most likely normal. Do you notice this on yours? Does anyone make a buffer to lessen the impact of these Two components?

TIA, Marco.

When you let go of the bolt handle and allow the bolt to fly foreward, does it also make a loud/noticeable noise as the bolt-head is violently forced to rotate the locking lugs into the barrel extension? :p

 

Seriously, your benelli is just fine. I know you spent a good amount on it and just want to take care of it, but when I bought my Les Baer TRS, you know what they told me when I asked about shock-buffs and other special care? SHOOT THE DAMN THING!

I don't really understand the question/issue.

 

There already is a buffer. That's what the recoil tube, and the buffer spring is for. There is no need for a plastic or whatever buffer like there is in some other guns.

 

That being said, I've never noticed anything unusual about racking my m4.

Ill use the AR 15 as an example. On the rear of the buffer there is a small rubber "knob" that is desinged to lessen the impact of the buffer when the weapon is fired.

 

On the Benelli there seems to be "metal to metal" contact as the carrier moves all the way to te rear when cycled by hand. Buffer Technologies offers aftermarket buffers for some firearms to help lessen this impact when firing.

Case in point. My Ruger 10/22 used to do this. I replaced the factory rear pin with a rubber coated rear pin. Belive it or not it is much smoother and quiter to shoot.

I understand the concept, and have used buffer technologies products, I just have never felt the m4 needed one.

 

Either way, I don't think anything is available, to the best of my knowledge.
